I know I’ve said it before … but it bears repeating: the Pacific Northwest is rich in beauty! My daddy is rich – and He has given all this to me (and you)! So, taking in this gift we traveled up to the small town of Northport, where they were wrapping up a 3 day fishing derby! Trout and walleye were caught and weighed … with a fish feed to finish the day. We are on our way!
Taking a shortcut from Colville (that’s “call-vul” to ya’all who might be from elsewhere), the trusty GPS leads us up a mountain to a narrowing gravel road.
Then, it led us down the other side of the mountain. Right to the highway. Trustworthy is was – though we double checked with some old-school paper maps. It’s always good to have backups (training from being a computer analyst, I guess).
We got to Northport in time to hear the results, watch the celebration, and relax in the park (Northport Boat Launch Park). Here’s the view from there:
After lunch and a snooze in the sun, it’ll be good to meander down some different back roads.
Another warm and sultry summer day … one of those days that call for long pauses to reflect on the countryside with a glass of ice-cold tea! Oh, I’m so happy to have a truck camper – easy to drive around, and with all the amenities of home.
We came across a campground and boat launch that was almost empty … it was small (only 9 sites), but right on the edge of the Columbia. We’ll come back here – maybe next weekend!
